65) Jacksonville Jaguars: Dillon Radunz, OT North Dakota State
66) Cincinnati Bengals: Kwity Paye, EDGE Michigan
67) Washington Redskins: Trey Dean III, CB Florida
68) Carolina Panthers: Kuony Deng, LB California
The Panthers displayed a heavy emphasis on defense in the 2020 NFL Draft, opting to draft defensive players with all seven of their picks. There was also another theme present, however: versatility.
Most of the players they picked, especially Jeremy Chinn, possessed the athleticism and talent to play multiple roles. California linebacker Kuony Deng is a pick from that same vein; he’s a lengthy, athletic linebacker who offers multifaceted upside.
69) Miami Dolphins: Landon Young, OT Kentucky
70) New York Jets: Asante Samuel Jr., CB Florida State
71) New York Giants: Joseph Ossai, LB Texas
72) Detroit Lions: Azeez Ojulari, EDGE Georgia
73) Arizona Cardinals: Damonte Coxie, WR Memphis
This feels like a luxury pick for the Cardinals, who already have an offense that contains Kyler Murray, Kenyan Drake, DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk, and Andy Isabella. But Fitzgerald will be retiring after next season, and the long-term outlook of Kirk is unclear.
It’s never a bad thing to add more dynamic ability to an offense, and that’s what Arizona does here. Coxie has size, speed, body control, and burst after the catch. That’s a good framework for success as a wide receiver.
74) Las Vegas Raiders: Kyle Trask, QB Florida
75) Los Angeles Chargers: Tyson Campbell, CB Georgia
76) Denver Broncos: Adrian Ealy, OT Oklahoma
77) Atlanta Falcons: Jeremy Rucker, TE Ohio State
78) Houston Texans: Deonte Brown, OG Alabama
79) Chicago Bears: Richard LeCounte, S Georgia
80) Cleveland Browns: Osa Odighizuwa, DT UCLA
When the Browns’ defense finally meshes together and plays up to its potential, it will be spectacular. At this point, Osa Odighizuwa is just icing on the cake. Odighizuwa is a bit undersized for the interior defensive line, but he packs a massive punch down the middle, and he has the power and athleticism to provide disruption. In a rotation with players like Larry Ogunjobi and Sheldon Richardson, Odighizuwa could be dangerous.
81) Los Angeles Rams: Dimitri Moore, LB Vanderbilt
82) Minnesota Vikings: Paris Ford, S Pittsburgh
83) Indianapolis Colts: Kellen Mond, QB Texas A&M
84) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Chris Olave, WR Ohio State
85) Tennessee Titans: Jonathan Cooper, EDGE Ohio State
86) Buffalo Bills: Sage Surratt, WR Wake Forest
87) Philadelphia Eagles: Amari Rodgers, WR Clemson
With Justyn Ross out for the 2020 season, Amari Rodgers will get his chance to emerge as the Clemson Tigers’ top receiving target. Rodgers isn’t nearly as established as Ross, but he’s flashed impressive run-after-catch ability, and he can gear up in an instant after the ball comes into his possession.
His growth as a receiver in 2020 could lead him to an early selection in 2021, and depending on the perception surrounding Ross’ injury, he could be the first Tigers’ receiver drafted.
88) Seattle Seahawks: Thomas Graham, CB Oregon
89) Pittsburgh Steelers: Tanner Morgan, QB Minnesota
90) New England Patriots: Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB Notre Dame
91) Dallas Cowboys: Matt Bushman, TE Brigham Young
92) Green Bay Packers: Jabril Cox, LB LSU
93) Washington Redskins (via 49ers): Josh Pederson, TE Louisiana-Monroe
94) Baltimore Ravens: Justyn Ross, WR Clemson
95) Cleveland Browns (via Saints): Kylin Hill, RB Mississippi State
96) Kansas City Chiefs: Charles Snowden, LB Virginia
